Hello all,

WD 7 dec 2010, Section 10.8.1
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#propdef-vertical-align

{
<percentage>
    Raise (positive value) or lower (negative value) the box by this
distance (a percentage of the 'line-height' value). The value '0%'
means the same as 'baseline'.
<length>
    Raise (positive value) or lower (negative value) the box by this
distance. The value '0cm' means the same as 'baseline'.
}

Somehow the wording of these sentences do not *explicitly* indicate that
it raises|lowers the box above|below the baseline of the parent inline box
by such distance.

Suggested insertions
====================

{
<percentage>
    Raise (positive value) or lower (negative value) the inline box above
the baseline of parent inline box or below the baseline of parent
inline box by this distance (a percentage of the 'line-height' value).
The value '0%' means the same as 'baseline' of parent inline box.
<length>
    Raise (positive value) or lower (negative value) the inline box above
the baseline of parent inline box or below the baseline of parent
inline box by this distance. The value '0cm' means the same as
'baseline' of parent inline box.
}

My english is not impeccable so maybe there is a way to propose better
text suggestions, textual improvements on this.

season's greetings, Gérard
